365 DiFlora Moscato

And speaking of exploration and experimentation ….  This is the last of my tastings from the inexpensive Moscatos available in my area.  There are more, of course.  Many more, in fact.  But I had to cut myself off somewhere or I’d have permanent high blood sugar.  I saw some pink Moscatos and some sparkling Moscatos on the shelves that looked very interesting.  After awhile, perhaps I’ll pull a few of those for sampling.  For now, though, I’ll call this Moscato “tour” at an end with this interesting non-vintage offering imported from Italy by Whole Foods.

Winemaker:  Elledi (Cantina Levorato S.R.L.) for Whole Foods
Wine:  365 DiFlora Moscato
Varietal:  Moscato
Vintage:  NV
Appellation:  Puglia IGT, Italy
Price:  $8.99 at Whole Foods

Notes:  In the glass, the color of this somewhat drier Moscato (11% alcohol) was a light yellow.  The bouquet on this Italian was surprisingly faint with only light suggestions of citrus and peach.  The body was light and acidity was fine.  On the tongue, I found mostly floral notes with honey and herbs .  I did taste an underlying apricot, but it was definitely second (or third) fiddle.  I’d say that makes this Moscato quite different from the main.
